This weekend I completed the crankshaft and flywheel. Let’s start with the crank. First I faced the stock and drilled the center hole.



Then it was over to the mill where I centered up on the hole and drilled the hole for the crank pin.



The sides of the part were milled to shape and parted off.



The shaft was turned to fit in the crank and loctited together. Then  the crankshaft assembly was faced and turned to true it up.



Next was the flywheel. It was mounted on the three jaw and centered with a bump center. The center boss was cleaned up and the center hole drilled.



The part was flipped and and the other center cleaned up. The flywheel was mounted on a mandrill, turned and faced.



Unfortunately the casting had several blow holes in the rim and he face. Feeling lazy, I decided paint the flywheel. I cleaned up the other side and then fill the holes with JB weld.



Once the JB weld cured I cleaned up the flywheel.



With that done I am getting close to end of this one. I have a few more “bits and bobs” left to do to complete the machining.

Till next time

Sorry to hear about the flaws in the flywheel Tony, looks like you did a good repair job.  Where did you get the casting from?

It’s a PM research casting.
